I am the Branch Manager AVP for the Southglenn Bank of the West. I find it personally important to be active in the community I work and or live in; and Bank of the West supports each branch manager in serving on at least one local non-profit board as well. I got my start in banking about 13 years ago in the Littleton area, and now manage a branch along with business development in the local community. I graduated from the University of Oregon in 2009; with a BA in art, and decided to continue in banking, as it had become my second education at the time. I now have two kids, one 2 ½ year old son and one 5 month old little girl. What I do in my spare time has now become surrounded around how we can get as much energy out of the kids before nap time. The children’s Advisory Network has given me an opportunity to connect to local events and stay informed about how we can help to support the children and families in our community.
